Barnegat Light Photography Location
Barnegat Light, N.J. Photography Hot Spot Location
Barnegat Light is a stupendous photography location. Barnegat Lighthouse in Barnegat Lighthouse State Park is located on the northern tip of Long Beach Island in Ocean County. You can do photography here during the day and at night.
We love this location because of the dark skies, which allow us to shoot the milky way during the ideal conditons. This area is quiet mid-week, and the crowds are not huge, which is perfect when trying to relax while also doing some shooting. You can sit on the beach by day and shoot the milky way by night if you choose. You have many options. There is a great motel just a few blocks from the Barnegat Light House.
The only bags we use! That should say it all.
The North Shore Inn Barnegat Light, N.J.
We loved our stay here at the perfect location to the lighthouse. We visited during the week, and this end of the island was tranquil just like we liked it. We had a fabulous dinner, just a few blocks. These rooms are immaculate and very affordable. It was very peaceful.
OUR TOP COFFEE PICK
Great Coffee at a Great Price!
Where to go for Coffee, before milky way photography you say? This is the only place to go in this area. How you Brewing? The coffee at the Inlet Deli on Broadway was very weak compared to the perfect cup of coffee you will get here. At the Inlet Deli, the breakfast sandwich was expensive and not filling. The Anti-President soda cans on the counter were offensive, and the overall experience was not fabulous. The coffee and the lack of eggs on the egg sandwich is the reason we will not return. Considering lunch meat is a cancer causer, we would not go here for lunch either. There is a restaurant next to the lighthouse but they only take cash.

We had a great experience at the Daymark Restaurant in Barnegat Light. It was only a block or so from our milky way night photography location at the lighthouse. The restaurant had a very modern, elegant style and the service was outstanding!
What made our experience special, aside from our top-notch service, was the manager. He took a great interest in our desire to see some more vegetarian type dishes on the menu. He had a passion about him to bring and excellence to this business. He listened intently to suggestions and showed his devotion to the business. We enjoyed speaking with someone who showed genuine concern and had an outstanding work ethic, one of a caliber that is hard to come by.
Nothing too close.
